Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas Review

To be honest, Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas completely slipped under my radar when it was first released on iOS back in 2013. When the announcement came that it was being brought to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, interest immediately sparked, as after initial impressions, it looked like a type of game that was right up my alley. Whenever a game is brought to consoles from the mobile platform though, I always tread lightly and stay cautious, just in case. Is Oceanhorn nothing more than a Legend of Zelda clone? Or is there more to it? Read on for...

Dear Esther: Landmark Edition Review

Conceived back in 2007 and released as a free-to-play mod in 2008, Dear Esther is a pioneer in the gaming landscape, having created it’s own genre. It received a commercial release in 2012 on PC, and as such, the “walking simulator” was born, spawning many clones that did their own take on what Dear Esther was trying to do. The Landmark Edition features remastered audio, which continues to be the games strongest selling point, and Developer’s Commentary. Is it worth experiencing again after having been away from the spotlight for several years? Read on for our full Dear Esther: Landmark...

Batman: The Telltale Series – Ep 1: Realm of Shadows Review

Telltale Games has been on a roll since introducing the masses to the “Choose Your Own Adventure” style of episodic game with The Walking Dead: Season One. Batman: The Telltale Series is taking that style into the world of DC Comics, where nothing is off limits in the world of superheroes. But, with a multitude of games using that same style, is it time for a change, or is it still working as well as it did when fans fell in love with Lee and Clementine? Read on for our full review of Episode 1: Realm of Shadows. Title: Batman:...

World of Warcraft: Legion Review

My history and love for World of Warcraft and Blizzard Entertainment is well documented here on Level Down Games. Perhaps my favorite game of all time, World of Warcraft is something I continuously find myself getting lost and swept away in, as each new expansion rolls around. I look forward to when new information is released about upcoming patches and expansions. BlizzCon can never seem to get here fast enough. And I just never seem to have enough time in the day to spend in Azeroth as I would like. Legion is by far one of Blizzard’s best. After...
